The 20th Annual D&R Canal Towpath "Train"ing Run is now sold out. With a goal of providing a great running experience , event organizers have limited participation to 300 runners. Volunteer positions are still available as well as participating in the picnic.

RVRR’s ‘Train’ing Run is a non-competitive Group Run held to celebrate National Trails Day
and benefit the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. We donate $.50 for every mile we run or walk!

Run part, or all, of the 34.6 mile D&R towpath together in a group!

Groups of runners (called ‘trains’) will run (travel) at pre-determined paces to Grove # 4 in Johnson Park in New Brunswick (the destination station).

Starting in Trenton with small groups of runners who are challenging themselves to go the entire distance, the ‘trains’ will add additional runners (passengers) who join (board their ‘train’) at the speed they want to travel. By the end, one massive group of runners and walkers will be moving in a continual train along the Towpath. Trains will have an official pacer (conductor) to keep these trains on schedule. Trains stop at each ‘station’ along the way, and from Alexander Road to the end there is fuel (water and/or snacks) available. All trains are scheduled to reach the destination at 11 a.m. to rest, feast and celebrate a day of running camaraderie.

Join us for the best running day of your life!
